    Partnership – World Peace Foundation

    In this partnership, Cartoon Movement worked with the World Peace Foundation (part of Fletcher School of International Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University) to create a series of cartoons about peace in the 21st century, inspired by the visuals used by the international peace movement in the early 20th century. We asked our cartoonists to translate the visuals that were used 100 years ago to the reality of the 21st century, resulting in over 120 cartoons submitted to the project newsroom. The final selection of cartoons will be used in an exhibition at the World Peace Foundation.

  • Behind-the-Scenes


    Cartoons are made in many different ways. Older cartoonists tend to prefer pen and paper, while the younger artists favor a completely digital work process more often. In our series Behind-the-Scenes we ask our cartoonists to show us how they work.

  • Partnership – Election Cartoons

    Partnership – Election Cartoons

    For Radio Netherlands Worldwide (RNW), we have run a number of projects on elections in the Arab World and in Mexico. In several countries, RNW created voting compasses to help voters decide which party or politician to vote for, depending on where they stand on important issues. Editorial cartoons were used to illustrate the voting compasses, because they have the power to show the core of an issue in a single image.

  • Comics Journalism – Army of God

    Comics Journalism – Army of God

    Based on David Axe's reporting from the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2010, Army Of God is an ambitious 100-page non-fiction graphic novel that explores the history of the Lord's Resistance Army and what is now one of the worst ongoing humanitarian crises in the world. Based on eyewitness accounts from captives and those working to stop the destructive militia, each chapter focuses on a different person and their role in the saga. With stark black and white artwork from Tim Hamilton, each character's chilling account is brought to life, from diplomats to LRA soldiers to the women and children directly impacted by their campaign.

    Perspectives on Freedom 2011-2016

    Since 2011, we have produced cartoons for the National 4 and 5 May Committee in the Netherlands every year. These cartoons are about freedom and are related to May 5th, Liberation Day. The Netherlands has its own tradition for commemorating WWII and celebrating the Liberation. Two days are set apart: one for observances and one for festivities. At the evening of the 4th of may, the Dutch remember the Dutch victims of WWII and victims of other wars and peace keeping operations since. On the 5th of may, they celebrate freedom. Not just by looking back, but also looking forwards.
